Can you let us know how the gas tank fits? I just lined my original with POR15. We'll see how good a job I did and how long it lasts. I'm just curious about fitment of the repro tank. I haven't read good things.

Dave, Iím going to give it a try. I havenít even taken time to uncover my Jeep in the yard yet. Reluctant to as in 3 weeks I need to have it all covered up for another deployment. I got side tracked working on house projects and f100 truck stuff. I am transferring to the ugly sister ship of my current. Sheís a year older and worse for wear. Itís a rinse and repeat of my last two years on the current one.
Off the bat I donít like the filler neck of the tank . The tabs to help hold the cap on it are a little long and I canít push the gas cap on. May need to trim it. The inside of the gas tanks is covered in grit that I will need to clean before I do anything in regards to filling with fuel.
I also find it annoying that I have to purchase the hardware separately from the tank. For the price you pay, they couldnít add the 10 or so little screws for the sending unit and in tank filter system... nickel and dime to death.
Taking a week off work for all the above projects and this one. Will let you all know- though I may get deployed till August before I can do this stuff. Luck of the draw I was assigned to a ship whose schedule is opposite my current one. _________________ i have a build thread on Youtube. just type in CoastieReid in the search.
